We found the staff most helpful, the food at the resturant was superb. The facilities were a bit older with noticable signs of maintenance needed, the sleep comfort was a 2/5, good if you like a hard firm mattress. Overall we would return but only in a beach front bungalow, we spent 2 night in one fantastic.

Receptionists were friendly and accommodating, hotel is great location on the powdery soft beach, make sure to stay here and not on the mangrove side of the island. I stayed in a renovated ground floor room, was lovely except at one point someone was smoking in room next door which entered my room, staff were great and offered to switch... More

I love this place! Out of the way from busy Chaweng Beach - Lamai has everything you want/need. Sand Sea Resort is beautifully nestled in the garden by the beach. Great staff, great views and beautiful pool and accommodation. I loved it here!

Luckily, I only had to spend 3 nights here and that was more than enough. The bungalow I was booked into probably needed renovations around the time the Berlin Wall got torn down. Nails sticking out of the floor, limp towels, old linen, a "bathing facility" that was a disused swimming pool around which a wall had been built, filthy... More

I stayed in the Royal Pool Villa with my daughter and it was awesome! The spa was amazing, the room was large as was the bathroom and all impeccably clean. The pool was a haven in this beautiful hot country even tho you're right on the beach I personally still prefer a pool. A short walk along the beach brings... More

Nice staff, clean and quiet. Not too many Russians and French people. Only 20 m from beach. Breakfast menu is good for Thai standard. And the pool is clean. Check if the aircon in ratteling before you get room.

Room was extremely old and looked NOTHING like the pictures online. The door to the room was not secure in the slightest and we ended up tying a rope from the main door to the bathroom door at night. The bathroom was such a let down as it looked lovely on the hotel pics. The bath was awful and very... More

Nice hotell with nice stuff, good food and sound of waves from the sea. If they get better signals for TV and WIFI it'll be one more star. We stayed for ten nights, the last four nights in a poolvilla - jaccusi and a pool just outside the glassdoor with a fantastic view to the ocean.

This is the sixth time I have stayed at this resort in the last ten years so I am in a position to judge performance and standards over time. I stayed there in late March 2014. I immediately sensed that all was not well. The bungalows are tired and getting a bit shabby. The standard garden view bungalows do not... More

I stayed here a week. I have no complaints. Very quiet, at the Beach, nice pool. They say they have a lof of French in the high season. That might sent a end to the quietness. But I think that is the same everywhere. There was no russians here.
